Subject: See Hear How Everything Lead Up To This Daybreak On The Rocks
Behold a new 2013 Mister Charlie upgrade, a pitch corrected and remaster of a venerable Miller thriller.

This SBD beauty alas is not complete, as the last few songs are from a HQ AUD patch: Out of 180 minutes in total, AUD supplies the last more or last 25 min or so. Still more than worth the thrill ride.

Nothing like the mellow roll of the night before, tonight's the night alright. "Tomorrow maybe go beneath the ground." While you still can dig the new Dead, this Red Rock hot August bust-out. Charlie Miller, your Cassette Master Candyman, is back in town.

notes: - d1t06, Candyman: several pops of tape static (1 in 2nd verse @ 02:04; 3 near start of break, from 3:45 - 3:53; 1 in start of 3rd verse @ 5:00).

- d3t04, JBG: taken from an inferior AUD (track omitted from the SBD and the HQ AUD)

A Deadbase doubleplusgoodies, Search expedition reveals:

- 2nd night of 2nd set of two shows in two nights, in Red Rocks in the summer of 1978 (first, 7-7 & 7-8)
- first "Heart Of Me" - first "Shakedown"
- Half Step> El Paso - 3rd of 5
- Terrapin> Playin> Drumz> NFA> Nobody's Jam> NFA> Black Peter> Sugar Magnolia - only [Terrapin> Playin> Drumz> NFA - 2nd of 8]

(I like stories time. Please skip this if you don't like to read shit.)

Subject: Terrapin has a cut before reaching its climax.
The SBD cuts at 7:51. About 1:10 is missing.
The AUD however is complete.

Suggesting a patch, I wrote an email to Charlie Miller. [Email was acknowledged.]

2013-06-17 - New version. Patch done.

The monster express has at last reached the station. You're welcome. To some sick sweet hot shit.

The hills are alive with the sound of the Dead, red-rock steady and ready to rock on out of the bag of the previous night's rolling around in a veritable bed-in on stage.

"Ain't a bed can give us a rest now, you keep us on the run!" The band rips off the cobwebs from the everlong six (or seven-come-eleven-or-did-it-ever-end) week long party, aka the Shakedown Street/Lowell George, production session of July and August 1978.

And now my old buddy, the Dead is coming for you. Jerry plays strong and fast as Samson in action on Samson, Playin and NFA. And that's just the beginning of the plain facts, Jack.

Note: there is Ollin Arageed in it.
- But I don't like Ollin Arageed.
- Agreed. In fact, I would hardly blame anyone skipping drums and Ollin to get where all the damn full-band fun begins in earnest again.
